    Thumbs down Error in dcdiag

    Hi

    Please can someone help me. When I run dcdiag I am getting this as part of the message

    Starting test: VerifyEnterpriseReferences
    The following problems were found while verifying various important DN

    references. Note, that these problems can be reported because of

    latency in replication. So follow up to resolve the following

    problems, only if the same problem is reported on all DCs for a given

    domain or if the problem persists after replication has had

    reasonable time to replicate changes.
    [1] Problem: Missing Expected Value

    Base Object:

    CN=MAINSERVER,CN=Domain System Volume (SYSVOL share),CN=File Replication Service,CN=System,DC=BALSHAWSCURRIC,DC=LOCAL

    Base Object Description: "SYSVOL FRS Member Object"

    Value Object Attribute Name: frsComputerReference

    Value Object Description: "DC Account Object"

    Recommended Action: Check if this server is deleted, and if so

    clean up this DCs SYSVOL FRS Member Object. Also see Knowledge

    Base Article: Q312862


    [2] Problem: Missing Expected Value

    Base Object:

    CN=MAINSERVER,CN=Domain System Volume (SYSVOL share),CN=File Replication Service,CN=System,DC=BALSHAWSCURRIC,DC=LOCAL

    Base Object Description: "SYSVOL FRS Member Object"

    Value Object Attribute Name: serverReference

    Value Object Description: "DSA Object"

    Recommended Action: Check if this server is deleted, and if so

    clean up this DCs SYSVOL FRS Member Object. Also see Knowledge

    Base Article Q312862


    ......................... SERVER2003 failed test VerifyEnterpriseReferences

    I have found the instructions to clean up the problem on How to remove data in Active Directory after an unsuccessful domain controller demotion
    and have tried to follow them and get this as the list of servers when I go through the procedure up to

    select operation target: list servers in site
    Found 3 server(s)
    0 - CN=SERVER2003,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuratio
    n,DC=BALSHAWSCURRIC,DC=LOCAL
    1 - CN=SOPHOS-SERVER,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configura
    tion,DC=BALSHAWSCURRIC,DC=LOCAL
    2 - CN=USERSERVER,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuratio
    n,DC=BALSHAWSCURRIC,DC=LOCAL

    Now I am stuck the mainserver has never been a domain controller in all the time I have been here. It is now completely dead as the hard drives failed. I have checked users and computers and its not in there and I have checked sites and services and its not in there either.

    Has anyone got any ideas how I fix this.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Hi

    I have run the frsdiag tool and I get frsdiag.JPG and the mainserver is listed in here.

    I think you need to take a look at this link it explains how to remove a failed DC.

    Delete Failed DCs from Active Directory

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498


    I apologise I see at the bottom that you followed that link.


    Is the server still listed in sites and services?

    Have you read the suggested KB, looks like it could take a while to digest

    Recovering missing FRS objects and FRS attributes in Active Directory


    What does the output of 'ntfrsutl ds' look like?

    Example 1 on the Q312862 article shows this "WARN - DC1 lacks a settings reference" which I can see in your logs so I think we're on the right track.


    Do you see any reference to MAINSERVER if you use ADSIEDIT?

    Hi

    I have tried the adsi.msc and it looks like an extended version of the users and computers I have had a look and cannot see the mainserver but I cannot find a search is there a way to search.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure that you can search in adsiedit. Have you tried searching the whole of active directory in ADUC for mainserver? It looks a bit like it was successfully removed from AD but somehow FRS has remembered it.

    It might be worth following this article through.

    I am sorry I cannot get at the link the site has been blocked by Lancashire. Please could you copy and paste the instructions.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Odd I could get at it this morning and now it's blocked here as a "Substance Abuse" site, I assure you it's not

    You might have to unblock it or take a look at home.
